Says Imelda about the Monster Holiday Drive:
"By alleviating some of the burdens on shelters and rescues, we help the organizations focus on other aspects of their business such as adopting, vetting and training. A bag of food for the animals could mean a second chance at life."
Now, Imelda calls her work, "elf herding" because she offers coaching and advice to those wishing to get involved in donating as well as helping those in need of donations. She continuously educates herself about breed specific legislation, attends events like the Million Pibble March and recruits more "monster elves" for the Monster Holiday Drive. Cuda has been a "monster elf" for all three drives so far. Imelda has also created an online store and 100 percent of the net profits are donated to rescues to help them operate.
I'm Not a Monster™ and the Monster Holiday Drive helped shape the mission statement of Cuda Cares: "Until they all have homes, let them have toys, let them have food. Let them live."
